Coping and support

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Living with dystonia can be difficult and frustrating. Your body may not always move the way you would like it to move, and you may be uncomfortable in social situations.

You and your family may find it helpful to talk to a therapist. Also, you and your family may benefit from joining a support group. Support groups can provide you with information regarding your condition. Ask your doctor for suggestions of local support groups, or check the Internet for information about support groups in your area.
